We also offer Approved Specialist Programs in Information and Communication Technology, Cheer Dance and Performing Arts (Drama). We also provide school-based enrichment programs in applied science, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and an athletics academy.
Children attending primary schools in the Morley area also have the opportunity to learn at our school. For children in Years 4 to 6, our Bright Sparks (junior science) and Project Edge (junior dance) programs aim is to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary school.
Our Follow the Dream program for Aboriginal students and Cadet (Bush Rangers) program engage students in a variety of learning opportunities, providing them with activities and educational experiences to improve their engagement, performance and pride.
Parents are encouraged to have input into their children's learning journey through various targeted parent information sessions, talking with their child's teachers, or taking part in the P&C Committee and School Board. Our teachers and support staff always welcome your input and will keep you informed through our website and social media channels, individual meetings, reports and our two e-newsletters - Interface and Circuit Maker.
Our staff have a blend of youth and experience and work together to share new teaching practices and established learning methods. Our teaching excellence has been recognised by our selection as a Teacher Development School for Digital Technology, allowing our staff the opportunity to share their skills, expertise and classroom innovation with other schools across the State.
We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure they given every opportunity to succeed by selecting the most suitable pathway for their abilities, skills and dreams. Along with ATAR pathways, a feature of our Year 10 curriculum is the emphasis placed on career education as a viable pathway. Here your child learns about the world of work, taking part in work experience throughout the year. This allows them to directly experience values such as work ethic, expectations, regulations and employee relationships. This can lead to pathway opportunities for their WACE and to further training after school.
